Pioneer Loan & Jewelry is a Pawn Shop with a long Las Vegas History.
Pioneer has been in Las Vegas almost as long as there has been a city known as Las Vegas.
Pioneer was established in 1931(as certified by the Las Vegas review Journal)on the corner of Fremont and 1st street near the current Pioneer Casino as a real estate/insurance office with a license to loan.
It became a formal pawn shop when the City of Las Vegas enacted a pawn ordinance in 1945.
From 1931 to 1960 the pawn shop remained at the original location at the corner First and Fremont, Pioneer was then moved to 15 Fremont st. and stayed there until 1965 at which time it was moved to 20 Fremont st. where it remained until 1972 when it was relocated to 113 North 1st st. One block off Fremont directly across from the side door of Binion's Horseshoe where it remained for 30 years.In 2002 the shop was moved one last time, to 520 N. Eastern Ave.
The Grand Opening was officiated by the Mayor of Las Vegas, Oscar Goodman and attended by several city council members as well as over 1000 locals.
The Pioneer was voted " the Best of Las Vegas" for 2002, 2003, 2004, the only three years that Pawn Shops were included in "The Best Of Las Vegas" votings.
Throughout the years Pioneer has remained a family owned pawn shop.
